Natural faces, defined with a velvety red-orange geometric lip complimented Hervé Léger’s fall/winter show. “The lip is about the angles; it’s really all about the sophisticated shape,” said Lisa Butler, lead artist for MAC Cosmetics. “It’s not at all rounded.” Eyes were lightly lined on the inside with MAC Technakohl in Plank. A creamy shadow, in a muted brown hue, was brushed onto lids and up into the brow bone for contouring and definition. Skin was left untouched and lashes were left without mascara.
Bob Recine for Moroccanoil counteracted Léger’s constructed pieces with free-flowing, slightly disheveled hair, reminiscent of a working model’s everyday look. “We wanted a look that isn’t trying to perfect beauty,” said Recine. “There is charm in beauty that is a little undone.” He used an invisible elastic to pull back hair and create a “languid fluid line.” “We wanted hair to be a bit shaggy, to show the realism of hair,” said Recine.
He used the argan-infused Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray first to scrunch with for texture, then to finish for hold. “This is a girl who understands there is nothing perfect about beauty.”
